There are plenty of ways you can show your mum how much she means to you on Mother’s Day. Of course, there’s always the standard breakfast in bed or flowers and chocolate, but there are also even more meaningful ways that you can personalise your mom’s day for her. Whether its mother’s day gift ideas that are specific to her tastes, or an activity she really enjoys doing, you can create an unforgettable day she is sure to enjoy.
Put together a gift basket.
When it comes to picking out a Mother’s Day gift, it’s important to focus on her and the things she likes. A thoughtful and specific gift will show her that you pay attention to who she is as a person.
Is your mum into cooking? Maybe she loves gardening, or spends her leisure time cycling or running? Instead of trying to find one perfect gift, another idea is to put together a gift basket themed to her interests or favorite hobby.
Prepare her favourite meal.
We all have our favourite home cooked meal our mum makes, but have you ever stopped to ask what her favourite meal is? Cook your mum her favorite meal for her Mother’s Day lunch dinner! You could also ask what her favorite meal was that her mother made and you can make it together. This is a great way to celebrate multiple generations of mothers while spending quality time together. If you aren’t so great in the kitchen, you can also take her out to her favourite restaurant. Your mum will love sharing a conversation with you over her favourite dish!
Make new memories together.
There are few gifts that a mother enjoys more than just getting to spend quality time with their kids. Celebrate Mother’s Day by celebrating the connection between you and your mum! Choose activities where you can have conversations and get to know each other even better.
Whether you’re just having a chat over a cup of coffee or doing one of her favourite activities together, you are sure to create new memories that your mom will cherish. You could also give your mum a weekend away with you as her present. It’s like getting two gifts in one, as she’ll get a break and a chance to spend quality time with you.
Throw a party.
If your mum is a social butterfly, then a party might be the perfect gift for her!
How big or small you want the party to be depends on who you think your mum would like to spend her day with. You can have a nice Mother’s Day brunch at your home, organise a picnic outdoors or rent out a restaurant space.
Another idea is to throw a Mother’s Day tea for your mum, her friends who are mothers or the other mothers in your extended family such as grandmothers, aunts and cousins. Then you can combine forces with other people looking to treat their mothers and throw a great party everyone is sure to enjoy!
Don’t forget Grandma!
Your mum isn’t the only special mother you should celebrate.
Your grandmother is another mother you should acknowledge on Mother’s Day. Send her a gift or include her in your celebrations. Regardless, give your grandmother a call to wish her a happy Mother’s Day and let her know you appreciate her as well.
Your mum is your biggest fan for life, so on Mother’s Day it’s your turn to return the favor.
Tell her how much you appreciate everything she does for you, and don’t forget to tell her how much you love her!
